What we do

Our purpose is to build trust in society. Providing decision makers with information they can trust and giving investors confidence. Our high-quality audit adds insight and value and shows if a company is sustainable and profitable.

Deals
You’ll guide public and private sector clients through major deals, organisational changes and strategic decisions. See close up how different organisations work. Tackle every kind of business problem. Help increase value while reducing risk. The work will be varied with no one typical day in the office. In Forensic Services you’ll help clients investigate, analyse and overcome a wide range of business risks and issues – like the damage economic crime can do to profits and reputation. Often in high-profile situations, you’ll learn to use independence of mind, rigour, and consulting skills to assist our clients.

Work placements

Work on real projects, learn about our business and get exposure to a prestigious client list. You’ll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on everyday projects. So you’ll get a good insight into working life at PwC. Our 11-month work placements start in September and are available at offices across the UK. You will sit a selection of professional accounting exams and get well on your way to becoming an ICAEW Chartered Accountant (ACA). You could leave with a graduate job offer and you’d then come back into a second year role to us, a year ahead of your peers.

What you’d do

You’ll do the same work and benefit from the same training as our first-year graduate recruits, contributing to a range of client projects as part of a highly skilled team. The work can be intense at times – but you’ll have plenty of fun, not forgetting competitive rewards, along the way.

Our offer to you:

  • You’ll be part of the world’s leading professional services network.
  • Our continuing success, size and scale, coupled with our extensive quality client base enable us to give you the best career opportunities to grow and find your niche.
  • Our development approach is centred on three principles; learning by doing, learning from others, and more formal approaches to learning.
  • To be part of an inclusive culture. Nobody works on their own. We’re supportive and collaborative.
  • Working in a changing world, which offers great opportunities for people with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Creating value through diversity makes us a stronger business.
  • To be rewarded with a competitive salary and a personally tailored benefits package.

What you need to bring us

  • A 2:1 or above in any degree subject

Opportunities are at the heart of a career with us. And we’re proud, based on the opportunity we offer, that students have voted us the number one Graduate Employer in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers survey for the last 12 years. 

Take the opportunity of a lifetime.
